Donations to the University of Manchester from alumni, staff and friends of the University provide support for scholarships, research and, through the Learning Enrichment Fund, projects across campus that enhance the student experience. In the past, these projects have ranged from laptop charging facilities in the library to welcome packs for international students, and we are now accepting applications to the Learning Enrichment Fund from students and staff for suitable projects.
Projects should complement the University’s strategic agenda and should potentially benefit multiple groups of students, or the student body as a whole. Please bear in mind that this funding is only made possible through the generosity of our donors, and, in order to ensure the University is using their gifts in the best possible way, applications must follow the attached guidelines. This funding is open to both students and staff at the University.
These forms along with further information can also be found online at http://www.staffnet.manchester.ac.uk/supporting-students/your-manchester/learning-enrichment/
Projects that have been supported before include: the PASS Scheme, the Library, Manchester Leadership Programme, Manchester RAG, Halls of Residence schemes, Disability Support Office, the International Society, FUSE FM and FUSE TV among many others. Around £450,000 has been given out to deserving projects to date. I have attached a document outlining the projects that have been supported over the last few years.
To apply, please complete the attached application form and return it, along with a sponsor application form completed by an appropriate person, to me by 5pm on Monday 23 February 2015. In previous years, this has been the final round of funding in the academic year, due to the volume and quality of applications.
If you have any questions after reading the attached guidelines please contact me on 52192 or firstname.lastname@example.org
